Billy Bragg has used this year's John Peel Lecture to criticise the government's education reforms suggesting arts subjects may become the sole preserve of the rich. "At a time of cuts to the education budget, the pressure on schools to dump subjects like music and drama in favour of those that offer high marks in performances tables will only grow," he argued. He also took aim at programmes like The X Factor during the speech, yesterday: "The judgemental approach of culture-clogging shows like The X Factor is the diametrical opposite of what John Peel stood for. His only criterion was that the music he played had to be challenging - whether it was good or not he let his audience decide."

"The songs and the music stopped; you didn't hear from John Fogerty for years. All of this took its toll on me. I couldn't write a song, sing a song.
